It is our go to hotel in Tuscaloosa and almost don't want to post. But the staff deserve the credit. Front desk staff always friendly and helpful, rooms clean and comfortable, wonderful breakfast! Now leave me a room when I need one because once we had to stay at the Country Inn & Suites when you were full. Awful.

I come to Tusclossa for business and never visit the campus. The hotel is located close to several restaurants and fast food options. I normally have to go to work very early in the morning (4:00am). The hotel is staff is always accommodating and opens the breakfast area for me. Because I go to work early, I'm normally in bed... More

This is the cleanest of the hotels on this year's trip. Free parking and breakfast included is always a plus. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean (more hotels should follow this example). Nice restful stop!

We have stayed in several hotels lately, and this one was very refreshing. Clean, felt new, nice amenities, breakfast delicious, and awesome service. We will definitely plan to stay here in the future. (Seems they employ hotel/restaurant majors also.)

My family and I (wife and Two teenagers) have been in a road trip for the last two weeks and stayed in many places. As we were heading from New Orleans to Nashville we decided to stay at this hotel on route. We knew it had been refurbished from the information we got when booking the room but wondered what...

Our room was so clean and the beds were so comfy. The shower was roomy and the shower head was great. The breakfast was good and staff was very friendly. I highly recommend it. We were about 2 miles from campus and close to a Krispy Kreme Donut store!

This is an amazing hotel. Me and my fiancé stayed here after a very long trip & I don't have one complaint. The shower was absolutely. The shower pressure was awesome. The bed was so soft and comfort. The breakfast was wonderful also. FYi- the hotel was so clean and smelled like bleach.

To my misfortune that I had not stayed at this hotel before. That mistake won't happen again. Being an IHG Platinum member, I have stayed at many, many IHG properties. Friends; this is one of the best in my travels and would rank very high in my personal Top 10. Front Desk person "Jordan" was of special note and much... More

Love the new renovations at the Holiday Inn Express in Tuscaloosa. Everything is fresh and new. Rooms are spotless and most comfortable. Great location, close to the University of Alabama, shopping and restaurants. Great Value, no better lodging in Tuscaloosa

We were returning home from Florida and were looking for a nice place to stay overnight. This was not far off the road we were traveling, so it was convenient. The staff was very polite and helpful. We arrived in time to relax out beside the pool, which was very peaceful, before going to dinner. The room and beds were... More
